Platform Cooperativism: The Internet, Ownership, Democracy


Dates:
Fri Nov 13, 2015 08:00 - Sat Nov 14, 2015

On November 13 and 14, The New School will host a coming-out party for the cooperative Internet, built of platforms owned and governed by the people who rely on them. The program will include discussion sessions, screenings, monologues, legal hacks, workshops, and dialogues, as well as a showcase of projects, both conceptual and actual, under the purview of celebrity judges. We’ll learn from coders and worker cooperatives, scholars and designers. Together, we’ll put their lessons to work as we work toward usable apps and structural economic change. This is your chance to get on the ground floor of the next Internet, and to help make it a reality.

Sponsors
It is sponsored by The New School’s Eugene Lang College for Liberal Arts, The Freelancers Union, The Workers Lab, and Demand Progress in partnership with Civic Hall, Democracy Collaborative, The Yale Information Society Project, NYC Network of Worker Cooperatives, Robin Hood Foundation, The Robert L. Heilbronner Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School for Social Research, and Shareable.
